Not your mama’s GWAR, that’s for sure. Oderus R.I.P…..
By Uncle Blurt
This one is a real head-scratcher… GWAR live in the Sirius XM studios and doing a song called “Silver Nickels and Golden Dimes.” Go to the head of your detentiaon class if you recognize that as a Howard Stern-penned (in the 6th grade, no less) “classic.” Term used loosely. According to Stern, “They remade my song that I wrote in the sixth grade. I’m very honored, by the way, that anybody records my song, but I have to say, they took a lot of liberties with the song. [But] I do like their version better.”
Uh-huh. Well, we liked their previous vocalist(s) better too, Howard…. Did we mention this is a real head-scratcher? It blows chunks, too. Meanwhile, why not read a story from the BLURT archives about the band’s obscenity bust back in the ’90s and how our editor’s fate was woven into the onstage shenanigans (that involved giant spurting penises, sodomized priests, and random cussin’).
